Finley fell in love with planning and the role of alternative transportation early in their college career, drawn to the concept of bettering the environment, not just for one’s self but for the broader community. A bike-focused study abroad sealed the deal. Finley studies transportation planning and also lives it, opting for busing, biking, and walking rather than driving a car. They also served as the project manager for LiveMove, the UO’s Transportation and Livability Student Group. After graduation, Finley hopes to land a job as a transportation planner.
